The product is simply applied, with a small amount, to any problem areas on the face, or specific zits that are wanted gone. I have been using this for about three or four years now, and it has been very affective. I used to apply it every night without cleaning my makeup off or using any other products, and this is where that product went wrong. You can use this product only as a side product after cleaning your skin and using your skincare routine. It cannot stand alone, or your skin most likely will become extremely dry as mine did. My skin was so unhealthily dry, yet I was obsessed with having no zits on my face that I continued to use it until my parents halted me and gave me the Obage skincare routine. I now only use dabbles of ZapZyt in moderation with my skincare routine.
I cannot stress how important it is to wash your face every morning and every night. Not only does washing your face in the morning brighten your complexion and make you look more awake, but also washing your face at night is important to remove all of the dirty, grimy makeup oils. Even if you do not wear makeup, washing your face is important to get rid of oils and dirt which can still attach to your face throughout the day, whether from your hands or simply from being outdoors. Washing your face will clean out your pours, and by splashing cold water on your face, so Melanie from Beauty and Bows says, this will close your pours, thus preventing acne.

In conclusion, this is an affective creme to use for preventing acne, but I highly recommend not using it alone. Be sure to wash your face every morning and every night-no more, because then the wash will become ineffective for that day.
What do you use for your skincare routine? Were you bad like me, never washing your face daily and nightly, or have you been very good about keeping care of your skin?
